Washington Examiner: DOJ inspector general found all four Carter Page FISA warrants were illegally obtained, Joe diGenova says

The memos obtained by Citizens United, and shared with the Washington Examiner, show Steele met with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec on Oct. 11 and admitted he was encouraged by a client to get his research out before the 2016 election, signaling a possible political motivation. The timing of the meeting is notable, as it was 10 days before the FBI used Steele's unverified dossier to obtain the original warrant to wiretap Page.

CU, CUF, TPC File Amicus Brief with Supreme Court on DACA

Citizens United, Citizens United Foundation and The Presidential Coalition have filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court urging the Justices to reverse three lower court decisions blocking the Trump Administration's efforts to end former President Barack Obama's DACA immigration order.  Our brief makes three main arguments: (1) The Trump Administration's decision to end DACA is not subject to judicial review; (2) the decision to end DACA was legal; and (3) DACA was unlawful from its inception, and even if DACA is not unlawful, the Trump Administration's decision to end DACA is lawful.  The Supreme Court is slated to hear argument in the case later this year or early next year with a decision expected by the end of June 2020.

Daily Caller: Here's Why John Kerry's Son Emailed The State Department About Hunter Biden In 2014

Former Secretary of State John Kerry’s son reportedly cut ties with Hunter Biden over the lawyer’s Ukrainian oil deal in 2014.

Christopher Heinz emailed two of his stepfather’s top aides at the State Department, Matt Summers and David Wade, after Biden joined the board of Ukraine’s Burisma Holdings in 2014, internal State Department correspondence the Washington Examiner obtained reveals.

Heinz’s email addressed both Biden and Devon Archer joining the board. Archer was Heinz’s college roommate and managing partner at the private equity firm Biden and Heinz co-owned, Rosemont Seneca Partners.

...

The Washington Examiner obtained the email through a public information request Citizens United filed.

“Why would Chris Heinz distance himself from Hunter Biden’s decision to join Burisma’s board in an email to John Kerry’s senior staff at the State Department?” Citizens United President David N. Bossie told the Examiner in a statement. “It’s time for Joe Biden to answer questions about his family’s business in the Ukraine and what his own role was in those dealings.”

Washington Examiner: John Kerry’s son cut business ties with Hunter Biden over Ukrainian oil deal

John Kerry’s stepson rushed to play damage control at the State Department after his business partner Hunter Biden cut a deal with an oligarch-owned Ukrainian gas company in 2014, according to internal State Department correspondence obtained by the Washington Examiner.

The email shows that Biden’s decision to join the board of Ukraine’s Burisma Holdings sparked immediate concern within his inner circle about the political optics. Biden’s father was then serving as vice president and overseeing the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.

At the time, Biden and Christopher Heinz, the stepson of then-Secretary of State John Kerry, co-owned Rosemont Seneca Partners, a $2.4 billion private equity firm. Heinz’s college roommate, Devon Archer, was managing partner in the firm. In the spring of 2014, Biden and Archer joined the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian gas company that was at the center of a U.K. money laundering probe. Over the next year, Burisma reportedly paid Biden and Archer’s companies over $3 million.

Hours after Biden’s board appointment went public on May 13, 2014, Heinz emailed Matt Summers and David Wade, two of his stepfather’s top aides at the State Department.

“Apparently Devon and Hunter both joined the board of Burisma and a press release went out today,” wrote Heinz. “I cant speak why they decided to, but there was no investment by our firm in their company.”

The Hill: George Soros's secret 2016 access to State exposes 'big money' hypocrisy of Democrats

Liberal mega-donor George Soros made some big bets during the last U.S. presidential election. One was that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency. Another was that he could reshape Ukraine’s government to his liking, and that his business empire might find fertile ground in that former Soviet state.

So when Donald Trump’s improbable march to the White House picked up steam in the spring of 2016, Team Soros marched to the top of the State Department to protect some of those investments, according to newly released department memos providing a rare glimpse into the Democratic donor’s extraordinary access to the Obama administration.

Then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland received repeated calls, emails and meeting requests from Soros, according to the memos obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by the conservative group Citizens United.

Statement by Citizens United President David N. Bossie on Anti-Citizens United Amendment

"Another year and another cynical attempt by Democrats to enact a 28th Amendment to the Constitution that guts the 1st Amendment."   

"On the eve of the tenth anniversary of the Citizens United decision that leveled the playing field for conservatives, the left continues to try to squelch political speech they don’t agree with."

"This effort will fail because it stifles free speech and is simply a partisan stunt."

"This amendment is total hypocrisy - Democrats pushing for an anti-Citizens United amendment at the same time they raise and spend hundreds of millions of dollars in special interest money to defeat President Trump."

"The Citizens United decision is one of the keys to President Trump's re-election – he must be able to compete with the unlimited Democrat cash machine. Let's remember that Hillary Clinton and her affiliated committees outspent President Trump two to one in 2016."
